Yes...in fact, I've had those 15 minutes several times! One was when I actually made it on screen in the movie Cocoon !!, and another was when I was interviewed on the radio for almost two hours about a book I wrote.
Yes. I wrote a book and the town I live in made a big deal out of it. There was an article in the newspaper and the local bookstore had me in for a book signing and several people wanted my autograph in church that Sunday and were all abuzz. It was embarrassing and I have to say, no I did not enjoy it. I am uncomfortable with that kind of attention.
Yes, and did not enjoy it! I did a few commercials in Taiwan and really enjoyed all of the process up to the part where I started getting recognized on the street. Very uncomfortable. There is something unsettling about being approached by strangers who feel like they know you...
I have since turned down a few things for this reason -- maybe later I won't have a problem with it, but for now I like privacy.
No, and to be totally honest I don't care to have my 15 minutes of fame as long as I can live a life that when I'm gone people can honestly say that I was a good christian Man. That is for me my 15 minutes of fame, for my family and friends to know I am in Heaven waiting on them.
Several times, lol. I was a pro wrestler, the guitarist for Eastern KY's hottest contemporary christian band and I toured as bass player with a gospel band.
I never had 15 minutes of fame, but I did once have a full 25 seconds of fame, and yes I enjoyed it very much.
Several times and each time there was a certain amount of pleasure attached to it. But I've never craved fame.
I've been in television twice in Los Angeles, both regarding my space related artwork.
I've had several one-person showings of my artwork, including Griffith Observatory (6-month display, filling east-wing display cases; plus 7-year display in main rotunda). I've also had a one-person showing at the Bonaventure Hotel, downtown L.A.
And I've had screen credit for some of my paintings (Saul Bass / George Mather production, of Ray Bradbury short, Quest, Pyramid Media, Santa Monica, CA, 1984).
I also co-authored a novel with John Dalmas which received positive reviews (Touch the Stars: Emergence, Tor Books, 1983).
Plus, I've been interviewed via Skype for a radio program in California while I lived here in the Philippines. The subject was regarding my www.MissionAtlantis.com website and 2 non-fiction books I'm in the process of writing.
Fame can help in certain types of careers, but I prefer anonymity and to help others without fanfare. Only by eliminating ego (not feeding it) can I ever hope to follow Christ fully.

Are you afraid of the dark? If so, why?What is it about the dark that makes people afraid? Do you think it is culturally dependent or universal to all cultures that many people are, to some degree, afraid of the dark?

There is at the moment another debate going on in the UK about the wearing of the niqab, it seems that freedom only goes so far when its against ancient oppression. The niqab has nothing whatsoever to do with freedom...
